    Re: Jazz and blues

    Yeah I think the proper name for jazz and blues or Rock is Fusion. Anyone into Gentle Giant or May Blitz? Many artists like National Health and Hatfield and the North, Soft Machine, all the Canterbury groups showed heavy jazz and blues based ideas, all modern music boils down to the blues.Carlos Santana was into that fusion between jazz and blues for a brief time,Love devotion and surrender was a milestone by him.:rolleyes:

    Chick Corea Elektrik Band, Al Di-Mieola material with electric guitar (he has a lot of acoustic material), Jean Luc Ponty, Stanley Clarke, Billy Cobham, John McLaughlin, Jeff Beck (also with Jan Hammer), Return to Forever (which is made up of some of the above artists), Miles Davis (Bitches Brew album), Herbie Hancock, Weather Report, Pat Metheny... and many more. I've been a big fan of this style (fusion) for years. Check this Wiki article out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jazz_fusion

    I've just been getting into Return to forever, haven't tried any of chick Corea's solo projects, but RTF is one of the most incredible things I've ever heard, and I'm starting to really like Miles Davis, it had to grow on me, but I keep liking it more and more
